Syrian armed forces killed at least 31 people today, mostly civilians and all but four of them in an assault on the town of Latamna in central Hama province.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said, 27 people were killed in the bombardment and shooting during an attempt by the military to storm the town of Latamna.

It said the deaths came after regular forces launched an overnight assault on the town and clashed with members of the rebel Free Syrian Army.

The latest fighting comes despite strong condemnation by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon who slammed the government of President Bashar al-Assad for stepping up attacks on protest cities despite agreeing on a truce.
